Instagram added a couple of new features today, and the most important news is a portrait-mode feature called Focus. The application also has a new way of mentioning other users in the stories with a sticker.
The focus mode is basically Instagram's vision of the portrait mode that appears on each new smartphone. The company says that Focus will be under the recording button next to the superzoom configuration. "As soon as there is someone in the shot, you will notice that the person remains focused while the background fades smoothly," Instagram said in the statement. "Just tap to take a picture or hold to record a video."
In addition, there is a new way to mention another Instagram user in iOS. The sticker "@mention" is in the sticker tray. Select it and find the user as if he mentioned it in a caption.
Instagram says that Focus is available on the iPhone 6S and later, and selects Android devices as part of an update of the application that is developed today.
